Summary
Family demography is a recent and relatively under-developed branch of Population Studies which promises new ways of understanding demographic change and new models of family demography and family change more attuned to the world's socio-cultural diversity. This volume looks particularly at marriage systems, how they have evolved and how they function in specific socio-cultural settings and economic conditions. Other subjects discussed range from the experience of families under slavery, of malay households under the pressure of urbanization, to the evolving institutions of consensual union and celibacy in Latin America. The book will be of interest to demographers, anthropologists, and sociologists
